    1. The slides will be posted on program-specific webpages within a week of the webinar. The webinar itself will not be recorded.

  1. 1) Biosketch for Mentors/perceptors- U-RISE specific personal statement needed- can you clarify?
    2) Table 2 for U-RISE How detailed information about undergraduates graduated/continued in research or related careers (last column)need to be? We may know where they went, but not month/year?
